Intel Coffee Lake CPUs are expected to launch in early October - Leaked Prices?

How much does Coffee Lake cost?

Read more on Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake series CPUs.

I'm not saying that 1984 is a bad book, but the dystopia we are currently living in has much better worldbuilding.

for gamers the 8700k is sure a nice CPU.

but as content creator a ryzen 1700 is imho still the better choice.
it cost less than 300 euro and you can get a nice board for 110 euro.

beside that using an M.2 disables 2 sata ports i really like my asus strix B350.
makes for a great second system beside my TR.

Still not competitive (enough) in my eyes... Yeah sure, more cores and higher frequencies maybe. But the price is still too high in comparison to Ryzen, which all is also soldered.

Definitely inflated and I expect actual retail prices to be very on par with the current generation.

At those prices I am definitely NOT regretting getting a Ryzen 5 1600 for under £200. Price/performance it crushes Coffee Lake even if the 8700k is the better chip.

Wow... With those prices I'm sure the 8700 will cost near 500eur in Portugal and other EU countries with high VATs... Not sure it will be a viable choice at that price point... Expecially having in mind you will have to buy a mobo as well even if you have a z270...

"That being said these new CPUs will offer more raw CPU cores than their older-generation counterparts, so a price increase is expected."

How does offering more performance (in this case from more cores) mean a price increase is expected? That is such a backward way of thinking. Considering how long six cores CPUs have been commonplace and how long four cores have been the norm, more cores shouldn't immediately mean a higher price, not by almost €100. If these prices are true, I am suddenly completely turned off by Coffee Lake.

lmao. Over 400 euro for a 6c 12t. That means it literally needs to be twice as fast and be able to do double the workload over the Ryzen 1600. And I would bet that you won't be getting no Strix board for just over £100 either.

lol. They really are barking. Just completely and totally barking. Are they even aware of what is going on around them? they've had the rug ripped out from under their feet !

It seems to me that Intel appear to be urinating all over themselves like an over-excited dog. I can't believe just how utterly DUMB they've been since Ryzen. It's like that company has almost lost it's collective mind.
